    Hi all forum members, questions about the auto transmission. Firstly is it possible to take out the transmission without taking out the engine? Secondly, would it be a better idea to rebuild a transmission that has a problem of slipping into 4th while its taken out or take it out and replace with a second hand transmission. Also what would be the costs of doing this?
    Thanks

    I had to get a transmission replaced in my n/a Z last year.
    I got it done at work so it was up on a hoist. Exhaust had to come off and then we dropped the box out.
    I decided to just get a second hand box from an R33 Skyline and change the bellhousing over as I didn't have the money to re-build the one that was in it. All up by the time I purchased the transmission and got it serviced and swapped over, including sorting out the differences in wiring because of the different models, it cost be about $1,000.
    The main challenge I found at the time was finding a 300ZX auto... I could find twin turbo ones (RE4R03A), but finding a non-turbo one at the time was impossible.

    Check and replace the trans fluid before replacing anything.

    also look at getting the auto ecu serviced and or replaced as well before swapping in a second hand trans.
